The New Kong Wobbler

From the Kong website ( http://www.kongcompany.com/newproducts.html ):

"KONG Wobbler
The KONG Wobbler is a KONG- shaped food dispensing toy and feeder that provides a new way to entertain and challenge your dog. The Wobbler sits upright until pushed with a dog’s paw or nose, then wobbles, spins and rolls, dispensing treats through a KONG-shaped hole near the top. Dogs quickly learn that motion causes treats to fall out, but the unpredictable movement keeps the toy challenging, even for seasoned Wobbler users.

The Wobbler is a fabulous toy for playtime, providing challenge and physical activity the whole family will enjoy watching. It also presents an excellent alternative to the traditional food bowl, extending the joy of feeding time and preventing unhealthy gulping.

The Wobbler is Made in the USA of durable, FDA food-approved, high-strength polymer. It unscrews for quick filling and easy clean-up, and is top-drawer dishwasher safe. With “one size fits all” sizing, the KONG Wobbler is suitable for all dogs weighing 10 pounds or more."


I spent about 30 seconds showing Nukka how to use it before she took over like a pro. About 15 minutes passed before she was able to empty it of 3/4 cup of kibble. I wouldn't recommend this toy being played with near stairs...it's heavy and would hurt if it landed on someone . Other than that, Nukka says it's a hit .

While you guys get a chance to view the video, think you might offer a few guesses as to Nukka's breed ?

Staying still is not one of her strengths unless she's sleeping .

She's way too small for Lab/Corgi although that was what most ppl thought when she first arrived. Vet says she's at least 7 months old and she only weighs 22lbs. I don't imagine she'll get much bigger.

I sense some ulterior motive here that I'm in full sympathy with!

I think the Pack has a new toy on the horizon! Cass is gonna love it!!!

for the heads up, Nukka! (Oh, you, too, LP )

looks like a different version of the round treat ball, only you can clean the inside (which is good).

Buddy always ends up wanting me to shake all the treats out for him--he likes seeing the treats fall out and into my hand.

My goodness she's so cute! LOL, I love that thing. She looks like she's an expert.

I don't know much about breeds, but maybe some lab/jack russel?
